Three words: the scientists told, how to spot a lie in a conversation with a woman
MOSCOW, 21 Feb — RIA Novosti. Scientists at Cornell University in the US revealed a list of words, the use of which with a high probability indicates that the female interviewee is lying, The Times reports.
The researchers studied the statistics of a special mobile app, which users evaluated the degree of “truthfulness” of sent messages. Just experiment was attended by 1703 people.
It turned out that to distinguish lies from truth in the writing of men is almost impossible.
The length of the “honest” message is equal to the length of the “false” and the characteristic of words-the markers very small. Scientists, however, advise you to be alert, if the representative of strong sex begins to say “probably” and “certainly.”
To determine whether the woman was lying, turned out to be easier.
The researchers argue that insincere the interviewee constructs the dialogue in “evasive” manner and often uses the word “possible”, the pronoun “I” and the verb “try” in different forms. In addition, the “false” text women, as a rule, considerably longer “true” (9.2 words versus 8).
“Found that women use words that indicate deception, much more often than men. This suggests that men do not have a comparable Arsenal of language means for the introduction of the interlocutor into error. Thus, when the linguistic analysis of false statements is necessary to pay special attention to the words-indicators of female speech,” summarize the researchers.
